Some questions about deimal numbers:

"0."      -- Is this a legal integer? I think so.
>> No, the decimal point in not allowed
"0.0"     -- Is this a legal integer? I don't know.
>> No
"000123"  -- Is this a legal integer? I don't know.
>> No, no preceding zeroes
" 42"     -- Is this a legal integer? I don't think so.
>> Yes, with value normalization
"42 "     -- Is this a legal integer? I don't think so.
>> Yes, with value normalization
